Here we go, either this unleashes a wave of violence in Tijuana, not seen since Teo, or cooler heads will prevail, and sort out of the situation. Still don't think this was sanctioned, look at these guys, these are the guys Fernando Sanchez entrusts with the kidnapping of the family of a guy as powerful as El Mayo? These little dirty goons? Who knows what going on. Also, coincidence this happened? Or Mayo's or Engineer's influence in the police?

This whole things sounds like a patsy was set up, but who knows? One thing I know for certain is that these guys that were captured will be killed in prison for sure, if they make it there!

They missed that guys left eye.

The paper 'El Sol De Tijuana' is reporting that these are El Inge's People that were cuaght. It will be Intersting to see if he really gave these orders?

While kidnapping is a terrible scourge on Mexico, these women all benefit from El Mayo's activities. Maybe we need to start turning some of their tactics around and arrest all known family members of cartel leaders as accessories to give them a taste of what they are putting people through. Only then will they think twice before acting.

Hit them where it hurts. They have enough money, so a few million isn't so important, but their wives and children?

El Mayo is going to have these two tortured and killed; the beating they received from the military will seem like a day at Disneyland in comparison to what awaits these two losers.

How is it that they can find these girls, but can't find Don Diego?

What a coincidence that these two were captured and the family rescued. Something smells fishy here.

Another victory for the Sinaloa Cartel... oh wait the Calderon administration... I am sure the CDS made the homework and told the military were they where...

The whole event sounds like a HUGE "PR" stunt from the Sinaloa Cartel!! They are great at using the media and to paint a different picture of themselves. Think about it, the cartels have been getting a lot of heat for delving into other rackets ie. Kidnapping, extortion, human smuggling and causing hell for the general public. This event would play great for the public to show them, that the cartel's family are at risk to the kidnappers and they themselves want to establish order to end this form of violence.

This wasn't only the Military, this was Macho Prietos Gonzalos guys and the military working together to rescue the kidnapped. Mayo's presence and power will not go undetermined in Mexico. He has so many people under his influence.

It was rumored family members of Benjamen Arellano were kidnapped in Sinaloa. I'm not sure if it's correct or not, but if so, could this be their response.(kidnapping "El Mayo's)

What's odd is the news was not reported earlier in any sources (before the video which the neice says they were kidnapped on October 20th?) and they were rescued within days of the video being released.

Did the niece and sister of el mayo go home freely after being released by the authorities? Not even keeping his family members in custody until they tell them where el mayo is? He is thought to be one of the most wanted criminal thugs in Mexico and the United States?

Always skeptical:
1) Jefe Diego still hasn't been located and rescued and these women were in a week + ?
And jefe Diego is from the same party as Calderon.
2) Why is it that everytime a rescue / hostage situation is solved,there is always drugs stached as well? It doesn't make sense: either it's a safe house to keep the hostage or a stash site. Not both.
3) Of late there's always the ubiquitous Barret .50 sniper gun I wonder if it's the same specimen over and over just being propped for the pictures? None of the combats documented for the past years involve the use of snipers, nor these puny individuals look like they have the training and the body to work a gun like that.

Go figure

I guess in Tijuana this morning they hung banners telling El Mayo to send his people to fight, and that 'they' were not as 'common' as he thought. Also, they were in Culican to kill his family. Signed Ramon Arellano -From Hell.

This is getting uglier every day, but still really suspsicous to me. Like someone above said, those are the kidnappers they entrusted with El Mayo's family? An important job? Two dirty henchmen in a dope spot?

Oh no no, TIJUANA esta en sinaloa haha

J, the banners were hung in Culiacan, not Tijuana. Goes to show that the AFO is stronger than most people think.

Namas pa que vean el alcance del CAF, en Tijuana NUNCA se han puesto mantas de nadie que no sea de Tijuana, solamente las del CAF y cuando estaba el Teo.

Pasado de vergas el desmadre.

J said...

Damn, I'm sorry about that, I wondered why Rio Doce was covering it, and not AFN, local Tijuana news. This still doesn't feel right to me. When they sign the banners 'El Ingeinero', I'll believe it.

According to Proceso, they were.
